Striking a balance: Light up Clinton

Clinton Communities in Bloom, in partnership with Clinton Home Hardware, is once again sponsoring the Christmas Light Up contest.

Legion craft sale

The Royal Canadian Legion #194, Clinton branch held a very successful craft sale on Saturday, November 26. A large number of vendors with a variety of items were on hand, with everything from quilting and sewing to knitting, jewelry, dried garlic, and more. There was also an abundance of baked items.

The Clinton Health Care Auxiliary had a bake table as well as a guessing game. One could guess the number of buttons in a jar for the chance to win a lovely crocheted afghan which was made by Helen Prevost. The winner was Jill Comeau, who guessed the exact number of buttons: 1,011.

Final council meeting

The final regular meeting of the Village of Clinton council for 2016 will be held on Wednesday, December 14 beginning at 7 p.m. Come and show your support, or make your concerns known to your council.

CiB Christmas Light Up

The Clinton Communities in Bloom committee, with support from Clinton Home Hardware, is hosting the annual Christmas Light Up contest in Clinton again this year.

In past years the number of commercial displays was disappointing, so this year the CiB committee hand-delivered invitations to Clinton businesses, inviting them to take part in the light up.

Judging will take place on Sunday, December 18, and prizes will be awarded to the best residential and the best commercial. The Clinton CiB committee says, “Come on, folks. Let’s light up Clinton!”
